Another Participant At The No One Is Illegal Trade Union Conference
Detained For Deportation

Another Member Of Liverpool Asylum Voice/Voice Of The Undocumented 

Defend Jannatul Chowdhury And Children Ishtiaque And  Nazifa

2 weeks ago Alphonsus  Mefor was arrested to be deported. He was
arrested without warning. This was no coincidence. Alphonsus was a
leading member of Liverpool Asylum Voice/Voice of the Undocumented. He
was also due to speak at the conference against immigration controls
being held for trade unionists by No One Is Illegal in Liverpool on
March 31st.  An unprecedented show of trade union solidarity managed to
get Alphonsus out of detention so he will now speak on March 31st. This
was lead by the General Secretaries of 5 major unions – University and
College Union, National Union of Journalists, Transport and General
Workers Union, Rail Maritime and Transport Union and the Public and
Commercial Services Union.

Now exactly the same has happened again to another member of Asylum
Voice/Voice of the Undocumented and intended participant at the March 31
event. Jannatul Chowdhury and her children are refugees from Bangladesh
– following the political kidnap of the children. Since both parents
arrived here with the children the father has had a heart attack and
died. He is buried in Liverpool. Ironically Jannatul helps as a
volunteer in  teaching of ESOL (English language)    –  a course from
which asylum seekers and migrants workers nationally are to be excluded
from attending.   At dawn on March 27th the entire family were arrested
without warning and imprisoned in Yarl’s Wood Detention Centre. This can
only be regarded as Home Office retaliation for the release of

Since the arrest the students and staff at Childwell Sports College
(which the children attend) have demonstrated in front of the Home
Office in Liverpool. 

However the family are threatened with removal this Sunday April 1st
